Fantastic tour with so many penguins, even some babies. They are all around you, but areas marked off with flags to allow the penguins' their space. Small café and nice souvenir shop.

There are so many penguins! Gentoo, King and Magellanic buy the hundreds. You can get great photos if you will be still and let them come to you! It's VERY COLD though.
